• Abstract

    The manufacturing, chemical, and process industries frequently employ Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) in industrial automation systems because they are very effective and dependable in applications requiring sequential control and the synchronization of processes and auxiliary parts. PLC-based control systems can nevertheless malfunction, leading to a substantial amount of downtime, despite their robustness, idealism, and tolerance to adverse operational conditions like unclean air, humidity, vibration, electrical noise, and so forth. To determine the methods that have been most frequently employed to increase the dependability of systems or components from 2010 to 2023, this study will offer trends in the reliability analysis of systems. To review articles released within the past 14 years, the study uses a systematic literature review process. The reliability analysis was divided into categories. The findings indicated that although the use of combinatorial and hybrid models is on the rise, Combinatorial modelling, which is the process of creating a mathematical model to solve a problem, can be used to explain this growing tendency. Hybrid models, which use both combinatorial and state-space-based solutions, are commonly regarded as the most cutting-edge method of evaluating reliability. For dependability analysis, state space models have been increasingly frequently utilized. This study will help other researchers discover the gaps in reliability analysis that need to be filled to choose the best course of action for new research.
